Age / Grade 4-7 / Kindergarten-Grade 1

When her family must move once more, Ophelia uses her imagination to make magic out of a scary situation. Most frightening of all is when Ophelia is left in her new class and realizes that everyone speaks French. Except her.

The kids stare, and Ophelia feels like a fish in a fishbowl. But equipped with the magic of a sheet of white paper and a rainbow of pencils, she will find a way to cast her own spells over the class.
